Hi All

Do we know how long it takes to receive the card once 485 status changes to " New Card is being Produced" ? I need to fly that is why asking.

My husband stopped working right now because he's in the process of transferring to airforce national guard and he's waiting to get sent to tech school and things are hard right now for us, since he's the one taking care of everything while I wait on my EAD can I request for my EAD to be expedited since I need to start working soon in order to support us while he waits for tech school? Can this be classified as financial loss?

Hi there,

Is it normal for there to be a delay between i-485 approvals for primary applicant and their spouse?

My wife (primary) got her green card on 9/8, but I haven't received mine yet (status online shows as finger print fee received).

Waiting for I-485 now. Looks like it is current again starting October 1st. Does anyone have any idea on how long it takes for I-485 after I-140 is approved?

I got approved today September 8 2016

Filed May 31st 2016. Total time 3 months and 8 days, very quick especially considering that i got one, RFE that took extra months to receive, send and process.

Good luck to all!

Hi, I have an interesting path I would say. Started in getting my I-140 filed, but got a O1 in between to be able to travel and work on the many projects I had going on. Please note the time gap.

Service Center Nebraska (EB1 Premium) Timeline

40/9/2015 I-140 filing premium
4/21/2015 I-140 approved

Note: Had to travel a lot for my work, decided to get a O1 in the meantime

5/04/2016 I-485, I-131, I-765 received by USCIS
5/17/2016 Fingerprint fee accepted
6/09/2016 Biometrics notice received with 6/24/2016 appointment
6/22/2016 EAD & AP combo card approved
6/24/2016 Biometrics completed
6/24/2016 EAD & AP combo card ordered
6/28/2016 EAD & AP delivered
7/25/2016 I-485 RFE received
9/01/2016 RFE Response Received by USCIS

I was perplexed at first for the RFE since I have a very strong case. But then noticed I omitted in answering some questions on the forms just by simple error in not double checking my application.

I hope this won't take more than a few weeks to get the GC in production and mailed to me.

Can anyone comment or give feedback on

(A) the length it may really take.

(B) My RFE was in essence for my spouse and not me, RFE wanted more evidence our relationship, i.e. bank statements, certificates etc etc. Can there be another RFE after my 1st response ? or must they make final decision ?
